The new 24: Live Another Day images feature returning characters Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) and Chloe (Mary Lynn Rajskub), along with lots of fresh faces played by Yvonne Strahovski, Benjamin Bratt, Tate Donovan, and more. See them all after the jump.

It’s not like Jack Bauer ever really has it easy, but as of today his job sounds just a little bit harder. 24: Live Another Day will have him going up against Michelle Fairley, known to Game of Thrones fan as Catelyn Stark. Considering what Cat’s been through on the HBO fantasy-drama, a terrorist plot in modern-day London should be a walk in the park.
Fairley replaces Judy Davis, who dropped out of the role last week for personal reasons. Learn more about her character after the jump.

Judy Davis is a superb actress, and for quite a few years we didn’t see her in new roles very often. She’s been more busy of late, and now she’s got what could be her highest-profile gig in a while, and one which could lead to a lot more work. Davis will play Margo, variously described as an “arms dealer” and “a British national and the widow of a notorious terrorist,” in the 24 sequel mini-series Live Another Day.
The show is set to air in the spring on Fox, with Kiefer Sutherland, Kim Raver, William Devane and Mary Lynn Rajskub all reprising their original roles. The new limited series will, like original seasons of 24, play out in real time.
The show takes place four years after the end of the original series. producer Evan Katz recently explained “We wanted the show’s return to be an event, and part of that was putting Jack in a very different context. Four years ago, we left Jack a fugitive from justice and we’re going to pick him up four years later in London.” [Variety]

Turns out the first part of that escalation will be a wholly new setting. When the show comes back in May 2014 for a 12-episode run, Jack Bauer will be in London and four years will have passed since his last adventure with Counter Terrorism Unit. Read More »
